Caravan Black Coffee is a new coffee joint/watering hole in BGC’s Net Park building. It’s situated in the middle of the building lobby area so there’s no direct sunlight so the mood stays consistent throughout the day. Aside from coffee, they also serve all day brunch and cocktails staring 5pm. The kitchen is handled by Chef Chiloy Santos of Kettle, Fireside and Tender Bob’s.

You can’t really tell what the place is from the vintage feel of the interiors with high ceilings and lots of beautiful touches like bowler hat drop lights. They got so many questions when they first opened that they added decals to the glass windows proclaiming themselves a coffee shop.
I started the lunch with a Cooper (P160). It’s a concoction of espresso, milk and almond, shaken and served in an old fashioned cocktail glass. I may have been drinking a great iced coffee but I do look extra cool.
Irene and I each got a plate of their Egg Breakfast which come with 2 eggs of your choice, toast, pickles, potato salad and a selected protein. I had the Bacon Steak (P290) while Irene got the Chori Hamonado (P290). Both are good choices depending on what your taste preference is, salty bacon or sweetish chorizo. Other protein options are glazed ham, sauteed sardines and garlic sausage.
We also got to try the Penne Rose (P285), creamy tomato sauce with bacon. This was very surprising as I’m not too fond of penne but the tangy and creamy sauce with spikes of bacon really made me enjoy it. If your like cheese then you can choose the Gooey Cheese Melt (P275). Shar and white cheddar, harvati with surprising dabs of guava jelly to balance out all the gooeyness.
Irene and I each had a cup of Flat white (P155) to go with dessert. Well made, strong and smooth.
Mini Pancakes with salted Caramel (P225). Perfect little pancakes that you won’t even notice popping one after another into your mouth.
Scone Set (P175). 2 house made scones served with whipped butter and fruit jelly. Irene loves scones and she enjoyed this crumbly pasty a lot. Maybe you’ll start speaking with an English accent after.
Croissant and Kaya (P130). This one is a bit out of place in the menu with it’s Singaporean/Malaysian roots but I’m not complaining because I love kaya. This is straightforward, croissant stuffed with kaya and butter, awesomeness.
An interesting item on their coffee menu is the Cold Brew Nitro (P240), seemingly a cross between coffee and beer. Cold brew coffee has nitrogen added to it which removes the acidity and has a creamy mouthfeel akin to beer. It’s pulled from the tap like a beer and served in a tall glass.
